We are living in an unprecedented time, and for many of us, we are spending an ample amount of time indoors with our family. If you are struggling to find ways to keep your little ones occupied during shelter-in-place, the team at Orinda Motors is here to help with some fun and family-friend activities and games that the whole family can enjoy:
Watch zoo and aquarium live cams -- even though many of these zoos are closed down, you can still experience the wonders, albeit digitally and through a live cam:San Diego Zoo & Safari Park Live Cams,Monterey Bay Aquarium Live Web Cams, andAquarium of the Pacific.
Grow a garden -- now is the perfect time to let your little one dig in the dirt and enjoy the process of growing a garden. You can even start with a window box version, and see which one of your children has a green-thumb. Here are a few websites for beginning gardeners:Green Schoolyards America,Junior Master Gardener Program, andKids Gardening.
Enter a writing and/or art competition -- there are several writing and art competitions happening right now that can foster your little one’s creative spirt:Scholastic Art & Writing Awards,Congressional Art Competition, andArtists Magazine Annual Art Competition.
Let’s get cookin’! You are never too old or young to learn culinary skills, especially with many restaurants being closed. A good tip is to design kitchen activities that are geared toward kids, such as making smoothies, preparing wraps, or fruit skewers. If you are looking for a cookbook,start here.
Break out the deck of cards -- cards are an excellent way to pass the time, and we have found awebsite that has 15 card games for you to choose from, even some designed for children as little as three.
We hope you are doing well. In the same breath, we want to acknowledge that we have no real understanding of how the pandemic may be affecting you. So, please accept our wishes for your health and the health of your loved ones.
As a customer of ours, we want you to know that we are ready to serve you, whenever you are ready. If you need us now, we are ready. If you need us in the future, we will be ready.
And if you need us in an entirely new way, we will do everything we can to get ready.
Please tell us if there is a new or better way we can serve you.
And, please don’t feel any obligation to respond. What matters most is that you simply know we are wishing you well.
